“I had tried to dissuade him in every way possible, but he is always so stubborn. I had told him that the trip was too dangerous, but he decided, nonetheless, to take it, eight months ago.
From Eritrea he went to Ethiopia, then to Sudan, and finally to Egypt, where he caught the boat that ended up arriving in Pozzallo.
It was hard to recognize him — I had not seen him for nine years — but I will never forget the moment I saw him alight from the ship.
He arrived safe and sound. He is Tedros, my brother“.
– Yohannes, EMERGENCY cultural mediator in Sicily
